Act Raiser (Super Nintendo)

It's great see see one of my all time fave games released on the Virtual Console, Act Raiser.
This game is comprised of two aspects. Action and a sort of city simulation.

Your Character is a god. While in a long sleep your servant angel wakes you up and makes known that your civilization is in ruin. First of all, never wake a god from his sleep and secondly when he's climbing out of bed, real cranky-like, don't tell him that his civilization is in ruin.
Being a pissed off god you head down to your ruined civilization, posses an old statue and then go on the hunt killing monsters with your sword.
Once the action sequence is finished you get to build your civilization. Tell people where to build roads and farms..etc.

The graphics are great for it's time and the music is totally hot. Sounds symphonic (if that's a legit word). You know what I mean.

Act raiser has an old Contra Alien Wars mixed with Castlevania mixed with Civilizations feel to it.

Like i said earlier, this is one of my all time fave games. It's a definite buy from your Virtual console. it's probably one of the better games on there. You won't be disappointed. But that's just my opinion.
